Email Benchmarking Report 2017
Welcome to the first Digital Doughnut Email Benchmarking Report, produced in partnership with dotmailer. More than 1,500 marketers took part in this research, resulting in a comprehensive analysis of the email marketing environment.
The research covers topics including email maturity, objectives and metrics, budgets, personalisation, trends, and satisfaction with email service providers (ESPs).
Central to the 37-page report is a comparison between email leaders and the email mainstream, which helps marketers understand what differentiates good email marketing from average or mediocre use of the channel.
The report also contains sector-specific data that will help you to see how you stack up against others in your industry.
The report contains the following sections:
- Email marketing maturity

As well as comprehensive documentation of the survey findings, the report also contains quotes from email marketers who were interviewed as part of this research, or who answered open-ended questions contained in the online survey that was live in May and June 2017.
